Alexander Ritchie Cemetery
(Donated by Mack & Dwight Holliday)

 
Some will call it the Cornett Cemetery.  Located on ridge between Combs Branch and Clear Creek, but you have to go up Combs Branch to get to it. Go up Combs branch, bearing  left and go up Cornett Fork. At the end of the road will be a gate across theroad down in the hollow. Walk up this road or if you can let the folks who live at the house open the gate for you but it takes a darn good 4x4 to get to it.  Follow the road till it get to the top of the mountainand then go right and then left up into the gap. Don't forget to look at the tombs in the woods at the end of this cemetery. N37.19 329  W983.06 698 on GPS
